Były transiarz, a teraz elektroniczny poliglota spotyka byłego jazzmana, a obecnie Rileyowskiego minimalistę. Wspólnie zażywają krautowej kąpieli w ekstazie, a woda w wannie przelewa się
Colourful bouquet of krautrock-jazz-techno collaborations between producer James Holden and clarinetist Wacław Zimpel.
Rolling on from Zimpel’s recent ace ‘Massive Oscillations’, the four driving and barely-tempered expressions of ecstasy on the ‘Long Weekend EP’ also form Holden’s first new release since early 2018’s ‘A Cambodian Spring OST’.
Operating somewhere between the likes of early Kraftwerk and US acts Golden Retriever or Ka Baird, the UK/Polish duo of Holden & Zimpel project four lustrous chromatic visions that get into gear with the languorous whirligig ‘Saturday’, and really stretch out into free-spirited wonder by the technoid peaks of ’Sunday’, before furling into more introspectively searching modes on ’Tuesday’, which also features the Göttsching-esque guitar of prolific Polish player Jakub Ziołek, who also contributes more chiming sort of Afro-inspired, Reichian phrasing in the landing sequence of ‘Wednesday’.
